Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone. Produced by Norman Whitfield. Album All Directions. Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone Lyrics. The LP version – appearing on the Tempts' album All Directions – is nearly twice as long at over twelve minutes. With its relatively sparse but expansive instrumentation, the song marks something of a departure from the Sly and the Family Stone-influenced psychedelic soul of the early Dennis Edwards era, into the more orchestral funk sound that Isaac Hayes and others had made popular through their soundtrack work on so-called blaxploitation films. Like most of the group’s singles since 1968, however, Papa finds the Temptations sharing lead vocals
Papa Was A Rollin' Stone" Papa was a rolling stone. Wherever he laid his hat was his home. And when he died, all he left us was alone. Papa was a rolling stone, my son.

The album version of Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone is a dazed, world-swallowing 12-minute symphony. And Whitfield didn’t waste any of that time. He built and built the song, carving a towering monument out of tense hi-hats and pulsating bass and shivering strings and hard-strutting chicken-scratch guitars and panicked trumpet-blasts. Soon after the success of Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone, the Temptations would complain about Whitfield to Berry Gordy. And when their album sales started to decline, Gordy would assign them a different producer/songwriter, and Whitfield would leave the label. But there’s something to be said for playing a role in a great director’s masterpiece. That’s what the Temptations do on Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone.
